- 0May 7, '12 by GrammaloveWarning to travel RNs. I have been made aware that PNS has dishonestly reported to a Unemployment Agency that a prior contracted travel RN had a contract that started the following day after the RNs 13 week contract ended. They even went so far to produce a fake contract and state that the RN 'did not show uo for work....and had knowingly quit/broke their contract. We think this has somethg to do with Unemployment benefits. But all false statements. Very shocking and disappointing behavior. So do not trust PNS
- 0May 7, '12 by WorldTravelingYogiCan you guys list the different places where you are being put up and the cost per month. I will need a place to stay in the fall for a month or two while I look for an apartment.
I know I lot of places put people up at Sapphire Village. Does any one know the price range for a studio? And is electricity extra? How much is the deposit? Anyone have these details. Or other places I may not know of. Thanks!
- 0Thanks for the reply. If you don't mind me asking, what unit will you be working on? Do you have housing set up yet? I am supposed to be working on mine this week. I am getting a bit nervous as my departure date is fast-approaching! Hope traveling goes well and you arrive safely.
- 0I have been told that a lot of nurses stay at Mill Harbour and Queen's Quarters. I am not familiar with Sapphire Village but I will do some research. I have found places to be in the general range of $800-1200. Grapetree has studios for $650 and they look really nice but I am not sure how far away from the hospital it is.
